MARTINSVILLE, Va. (WDBJ7) -- In Martinsville, the Bulldogs were after their first win over George Washington since 1987 on Friday night.
Martinsville got off to a rough start, giving up a touchdown to GW runningback Wesley Graves, who bulls his way in from short yardage.
GW kept pounding. On the next possession, wide receiver Shyheim Watlington sprinted around the edge and got a block from Graves to put GW up 14-0.
But Martinsville wasn't ready to give up.
Bulldog's senior runningback Dasyne Hairston got Martinsville on the board, punching into the endzone from just a few yards out. He gets stopped short but got a big push from the boys up front.
But here comes Graves again as he hollas back, breaking tackles on his way to the zone and GW had some breathing room.
Senior Wide Receiver Steven Wray kept Martinsville in the game with a big run, slicing and dicing his way to the house.
But there wasn't nearly enough of that as the Eagles won it 66 to 19.
